Hello from Alabama

In the market for a small trailer and after looking and researching and reading forums it appears that fiberglass is the way to go and right now the Escape and Casita are neck n neck. I was hoping I could find someone close so I could take a look inside before making a trip to a factory.
I love reading about all the modifications folks have done to their tt there are some very clever and talented people out there.
Hopefully this time next year i'll be posting pictures of my new tt.
Thanks
Marion

Welcome, Marion. There should be someone in your region, depending on which model you want to see. No need to go to the factory in advance or even when you buy. Many have bought Escapes without going that distance.

We will be on Lake Lanier near Gainsville, GA (looks like about a four hour drive for you) October 23, 24, 25, and 26. We will have an Escape 21 and a 2009 Casita camping there. If you have any interest in seeing our trailers let me know.

Hi Marion,
We have a 19' Escape and live in northeast MS, about 6 hours from you. We plan on being at the Open Pond Recreation Area in the Conecuh NF the 1st week of November. Looks like that's less than 100 miles from your location.

We were serious about purchasing a Casita and visited a rally this year to decide which Casita model. After seeing a couple of Escapes at the rally, for us there was really no decision. We placed a deposit on the Escape the next week.

Received an email from Tammy giving me a couple of names who live close by.
I want to thank everyone for your replies
BTW has anyone traveled the Alaskan highway? (That's on the list)
